Thin client hostname
I am in the process of rolling out a thin client solution in part of the school and I have come up against a problem.
I use answer files to set the printer and the proxy based on the room that the machine is in, so a machine in room R10 would have a name like R10-01 which I think is pretty standard. thin clients get a name like R10-Term01.
The answer file would be looking at R10-* to include all machines in the room. Now this works great for fat clients but my thin clients won't work like this. I have set their host name by right clicking on the desktop and going into configure and setting the hostname.
I am running citrix and the clients are LT210's.
Maybe I have missed something really basic but this is my first time with thin clients.

See this thread:
While it discusses session names, see Cybernerds post at the bottom about the %CLIENTNAME% variable.
